I find 4 instances of the GLOBALS.php:

[root@m1 forum]# find * -name 'GLOBALS.php'
GLOBALS.php
adm/GLOBALS.php
data/scripts/GLOBALS.php
data/include/GLOBALS.php

Are all these neccessary? In other words please explain the function of each one. As an old unix hack I am a fan of symlinks and would like to get rid of some of them Wink

Reason is that it seems to be bugs in the config-system. I can change an item in the config-interface, ex. "Display IP..." and it will not reflect a change i both the ~/ and ~/adm/ one...

There is only 1 physical GLOBALS.php, the rest are symlinks.

An "old unix hack" that doesn't know how to tell if a file is a symlink?

Not on my system, all are regular files... But that explains alot. Which of the four should be the actual file?

Funney ey? All four are regular files. Probably as a result of a poor usage of tar at some point. Viewing the PHP-source to see how and from where all situations opens them are of corse the timeconsuming correct way rather than to just ask.

Grow up!

GLOBALS.php inside the include/ directory is the 'primary' file. The others should by symlinks.

There are no more symlinks that the forum uses.
